The Wild, the Beautiful and the Damned

Not sure what yet, but one day I'm gonna use this song for something amyehzing.

Spirits of the Dead, 1968

Just rewatched this, it's three shorts by Vadim, Malle and Fellini based on Edgar Allen Poe tales.
The third is my favorite.

Putting It Together

A friend has just informed me that those voices telling Barbara that "nobody's gonna buy it" and that "this idea is too risky" are Sydney Pollack and David Geffen!  So I saw the video, and ha!
A mindblower that comes at the heels of finding out Alanis Morissette's "You Oughtta Know" is about Full House's Uncle Joey and "Slide" by the Goo Goo Dolls is about abortion.

Off the Books

Exactly two years ago, La Shea and I did a video called B*tches in Bookshops. When the song Bound 2 came out though, I thought to myself it would have been a better song to parody for the book video. I mean... it's called "Bound" for chrissake. But meh- I was so busy at work, and once in a person's lifetime seems like a healthy enough number to embarrassingly rap about books on the Internet.

However! Upon learning that La Shea was leaving back to LA, I thought to myself- why not close the cycle! She was leaving in three weeks from the time we decided to go ahead with it though, (she left three days ago) so we hit the ground running with a follow-up video for good ol' times sake.  La Shea is a gem and takes me back to a time where my biggest concerns were where to sit at lunchtime and if I could stay out late on the weekends. I will miss her, but I'm so glad we got to have one last hoorah before she took off to start this new chapter.
I figure at the very least it's a good opportunity for me and Eliav to play around with green-screens, and for me to try not to laugh instantaneously when trying to be serious and/or intimidating.  I also like having a prepared answer in case anyone asked why there were two Kanyes and no Kim... Prepared answer being: Because Kanye's ego is too big for just one person. Real answer being: Ain't no way we're getting naked for an internet video. I mean, exorbitant amounts of money- of course!! But internet video... Meh.

I also grew tremendous amounts of respect for Kanye, overdosing on his interviews and analyzing the Bound 2 video probably more than any person should ever have to (I know the timecode and duration of shots, people!!!). If I created the stuff he has, I might demand genius status as well. And the failure for the public to recognize such would definitely result in unsavory, frustrated behavior on my part. Suffice it to say, I could learn a lesson or two from Kanye's confidence.

About Me

My photo
I'm an LA transplant now living in Brooklyn. I develop film projects by day, write at night, and have a dangerous predilection for vintage Robinson Golluber scarves- this blog serves as a tiny window to everything else I do when I'm not satisfying those first three passions. I'm trying to blog more and tweet less @annabelleqv. What about you?
